DOP MLB - DOP - 03-28-2012 08:37 AM
My idea is simple. I bet dogs and very very short favs. I look at each game and identify the amounts of times I feel each team would win if they played 1000 times with the same exact lineup, pitchers & scenario.. If I feel a team wins 450 out of 1000 (45%), I will consider betting that team if I can get a line above +122 (55/45)
Obviously, the 45% is very subjective but I feel it gives a great guideline for what bets to consider.
I have seen people eaten up by the MLB grind.. playing -125 favorites turns into -150 favs, turns in -175 favs... The money is generally on the dog & worst case, I'm confident you won't lose your shirt this way!
Oh, and I always play everything Risking 1 unit. I dont have any system or ability to choose plays that are stronger than others in MLB so I play them all the same.
good luck this season!

Good luck this season

I played Orioles +142 in spring today. RHB heavy lineup vs. Brett Cecil - who BAA is 100 pts higher against RHB so I'm not concerned that Baltimore are minor leaguers
I also like the fact that Toronto played in Tampa last night.. coming back for a day game, I think their B squad may play today too.. and their two top relievers pitched last night too.
We'll see.. I definitely think +142 is worth the play!

Good call DOP. I was highly considering the Orioles before I even saw this. The fact they you went in on them for the same reason I wanted to made it a must play for me.
RE: DOP MLB - DOP - 03-28-2012 10:31 AM
odds (and an entire B-squad) say they'll lose but even if they only won 43-44% of the time in this spot, we'd end up being rich men in the long run!
good luck medale!
AND now i see why I dont put a ton of stock in Spring.. Cecil out for Tepera and the entire Jays starting lineup is in. hmm. I've had worse bets win before!

Took Cardinals -1 +116 today due to lineups & pitching matchup w/ props to JimmySingh.
Taking Mariners +100 tomorrow per the above!
RE: DOP MLB - DOP - 03-29-2012 09:53 AM
Think McDonald is a decent pitcher and had a great outing last week. Twins going with the fringe bullpen starter today. I'd say the lineups cancel each other out.

I have realized I dont have time to post "oh i played this and this and this" so I am posting my thoughts on the next few days.
Depending on umps, I want Atlanta/NYM U7. Atlanta dead last vs. LHP last year and a fresh Atlanta bullpen should mean that NY wont score past the 6th inning.
Something intrigues me about Masterson at +110 or better.
I will look closely at any of the following matchups at + money.
Leubke over Billingsley (friday)
Morrow over Jimenez (saturday)
Bumgarner over Hudson (saturday)
Buchholz over Scherzer (sunday)
Hughes over Hellickson (sunday)
Lynn over Wolf (sunday)

Good luck this year. Like your stuff. Will be watching.
*Also: I thought I followed you on Twitter? Either way, I do now.
RE: DOP MLB - DOP - 04-06-2012 11:03 AM
I played these this morning. I know the lines are not longer around b/c it was 5c juice at 5Dimes but..
White Sox +175, I took a flyer. Thats a great price against Lewis
Twins +125, I think they win this game. I'd play anything above to +110 to +115 range
Mariners +135, McCarthy is very good but Vargas already shut down a team that cant hit lefties. like this price above +125 or so
Padres -1 +120. I play -1 becuase I dont like losing juice ever but I think its a steal ML under -130. A lot of people have talked about a potential breakout for Luebke and I think the Padres offense could be better if Guzman continues to rake and Maybin rounds into form.
Again, my season goals are 46-48% with an average winning price at +120 to +125 over approx. 500 (which is a guess considering I found 2-4 plays per day I like)
I'm not going to keep close records on here or twitter, you'll know if i'm any good or not and I can always provide a running count upon request!
RE: DOP MLB - DOP - 04-07-2012 11:40 AM
1-3 here. Bummer. But thats gonna happen.
I played Marlins +141. Every year is always the year Nolasco is supposed to breakout but I'm skeptical that Latos should be lined at this price considering his fly-ball tendencies in Great American Ballpark. If Nolasco does anything well, it should be limiting walks and keeping inevitable HRs to solos only.
I played Giants +115. Bumgarner is a complete 180 look from Lincecum while Hudson is basically Kennedy 2.0. Regardless, I really like Bumgarner this season.
Also, parlayed Jays/Ms +250. I will buyout my 1u risked on the parlayed in the Jays win and take a free-bet on Ms around +155 tonight. I'm not putting stock in the Japan games and Colon should get tagged by LHB, something Seattle's lineup has a lot of.
I do like U9 in Baltimore. Liriano is hit-miss but pitched well in Spring. Neither of these lineups have earned anything.
